7 Ups And 4 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (Dec 4)
2. Booker Babbles
Contradictions in WWE are about as commonplace as chairshots
and headbutts, but that still doesn’t mean that we can’t call out someone who
seems to deal in them by the dozen.
Booker T is a passable announcer some weeks, but other times
he’s downright aggravating to listen to. And even though Michael Cole and Corey
Graves have taken to outright calling him out on his contradictions, Booker is
becoming more and more annoying when he goes off the rails, particularly when
it comes to Jason Jordan.
Maybe Booker is trying to make a greater point about the youngster,
but it gets completely lost as he flip-flops several times in a matter of
seconds. Even with Cole and Graves mocking him, it’s still ridiculous.
Bobby “The Brain” Heenan made a career out of doing it, but
that was part of his shtick. With Booker, you get the feeling he really doesn’t
realize he’s contradicting something he said two minutes earlier.
Scott is a former journalist and longtime wrestling fan who was smart enough to abandon WCW during the Monday Night Wars the same time as the Radicalz. He fortunately became a fan in time for WrestleMania III and came back as a fan after a long high school hiatus before WM XIV. Monday nights in the Carlson household are reserved for viewing Raw -- for better or worse.
